The Secrets of Blogging Tag


1. When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging in the end of summer 2014, I don't know the exact day, because I erased a few post at the very start. My first post now was published in the end of august, so that's what I will consider for my blog's birthday. I started because I was following a lot of bloggers, if I remember correctly they were mostly Slovenian, I do remember Tatjana from Taya - My little beauty blog. I even remember when I found her blog I was checking every day if she posted something, because I really liked it. I even remember I was checking on some forums for makeup products reviews, even though I didn't wear much makeup back then. Basically, I loved the idea to do something on my own, so I started a blog and I have never regretted it.

2. How many people in "real life" know about your blog?
Not much. My mother and brother knew almost since the beginning, because they saw me taking pictures. My mother even recommended to me to start a blog, when I already had it. After almost a year of blogging, I told my boyfriend and he was very impressed actually, he supports me. He even sometimes buys me things and says that is for my blog, and he helps me by buying some decoration for background for my photos :). Not long ago I told my father, I had to explain to him a couple of times what a blog even is, but I don't think he really gets it haha. 

3. What are your favourite posts to read?
My favourite are probably posts about hair care, favourites, empties, drugstore makeup...

4. List a blog you have discovered recently.
Not long ago I have discovered Neža from Rose Touch blog (she writes in Slovenian language) and Nina from LunxxChi (she writes in Slovenian and English). They both have a wonderful blog, that I like to read.

5. Which posts are you most proud of?
Most recent ones, because I'm trying so hard with photos, but I take my pictures with Samsung Galaxy Express, which is very old. I do plan to get a better phone in the next two-three months, so I can take better pictures. 

6. What advice would you give to future bloggers?
Blog for yourself, not for free products or for the money. When I first started my blog I didn't even know bloggers get free products. I guess, when I've been reading other blogs before I never saw if they got the product for free or not, but some bloggers don't even state that in the post. If you're blogging, because you love doing it, it will show on your blog and other people will much rather comment on the post or even click on the post.
Have big pictures. I like when a blog has big pictures, so I can clearly see the product and I don't have to click on the actual picture.
If you're reviewing lipsticks, foundation, concealers... do some swatches. If you're shy about showing your face to the internet (like I am sometimes), do them at least on your arm. If you have similar shades try to compare them (I don't usually compare because I don't own much makeup).
Comment back on your comments. I do it always, except if I really don't know what to reply, but that happens rarely.
